    Country music legend Loretta Lynn's twin daughters spoke out for the first time since the singer's death and shared details of their mother's final project.

    During the "Today" show on Tuesday, Peggy Lynn and Patsy Lynn Russell talked about their memories with their late mother and working together to make sure Lynn's book, "A Song and A Prayer: 30 Devotions Inspired by My Favorite Songs," was released. The book combines both devotionals and lyrics from Lynn's songs as a "unique form of worship," according to the book's description on Amazon.

    Host Hoda Kotb first asked the sisters how they were getting by and what they did on Mother's Day to honor their mom, who died in October 2022 at the age of 90.

    "We're doing okay. You kind of have to go through these emotions and this journey..." Peggy said before sharing that she baked her mom's homemade banana pudding for the family.

    "And when all else failed, that's what we could get her to eat," she added.

    "You know we are from a big family... you surround yourself with family on those days that are hard, that's what gets you through it," Patsy added.

    The two also talked about their mom's book and the messages she shared about faith.

    "No matter what faith... people have in their lives... my mom was a strong believer," Patsy said. "It gave us hope to see her again and for her to know that she's going to see us again."

    Peggy said her mom was working on several different things and writing songs all the way up until her death.

    "Mom was one of those people who... was working on several different things," Peggy said. "She was still writing songs, and all kinds of stuff... she just always had so many irons in the fire."

    The family released a statement in October announcing the late-singer's passing that read, "Our precious mom, Loretta Lynn, passed away peacefully this morning, October 4th, in her sleep at home at her beloved ranch in Hurricane Mills."

    Lynn was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1988, after becoming a breakout star in the country music industry. She's probably best known for her 1970 hit inspired by her Kentucky roots, "Coal Miner's Daughter."
